UK Initiatives

Samsung Hope for Youth Programme.

In the UK, Samsung has been working to increase access to technology and resources for our leaders of tomorrow in schools and through working with our charity and cultural partners. We want to encourage young people to consider careers in technology and help equip them with the digital skills necessary to enter the wider workforce. We hope to inspire the next generation and unlock their full potential for a brighter future.

Samsung Digital Classroom

Samsung Digital Classrooms have been opened at primary schools in some of the UK’s most underprivileged inner-city areas, to introduce digital learning in the classroom. In addition to providing the devices and training necessary, we are working closely with teachers to build a community of support that we hope will inspire ideas to further boost engagement, creativity and collaboration using technology.
We are also working with our cultural and charity partners to ensure that more children can benefit from the Digital Classroom initiative. Together, we aim to develop and deliver new and exciting educational content that makes learning more fun.

Samsung Digital Academy

Samsung Digital Academy provides vocational training courses on the most cutting-edge smart technologies using Samsung’s latest devices. The programmes have been developed to help young people gain technical knowledge and nationally recognised qualifications as well as essential employability skills necessary for a future in the technology industry.

Our Partners

Samsung Digital Discovery Centre at the British Museum

Samsung and the British Museum have been working together in partnership since 2008, developing an engaging and innovative digital learning programme through the Samsung Digital Discovery Centre which is offered to schools and families. Over 10,000 children every year use the latest Samsung technology to explore the Museum's collection in creative and educational ways. The programme continues to evolve and explore new ways of exploiting the versatility and power of digital technology to engage children and young people with the Museum's collection and exhibitions.

The Prince's Trust

The Prince's Trust is the UK's largest youth charity helping over 55,000 young people every year. Samsung supports the Prince's Trust's xl clubs and Fairbridge programme aimed at young people at risk of underachievement or exclusion from school and helping young adults back into education, training or employment. On the programme, young people learn new skills and develop confidence, making learning accessible, useful and interesting. Samsung is also delighted to be able to celebrate the achievements of the Trust’s young people who have changed their lives, through our support of their annual Celebrate Success Awards.

Kids Company

Kids Company works with over 17,000 children in London alone every year, offering them emotional and educational support. Our partnership with Kids Company started from the Samsung Hope Relay during the London 2012 Olympic Games. Kids Company was one of three charity recipients of funds raised by the UK public by completing miles on their mobile app. Samsung opened its first Digital suite at Kids Company’s Urban Academy in October 2012, and in 2013 opened its second facilities at their Kenbury Centre for younger children providing access to the latest technology. We hope will capture their imagination and inspire them to achieve - just as London 2012 inspired all of us.
